Wednesday, 10/10 AND 10/24 6-7:30pm
In this Learn to Knit Socks class, you'll learn the sock basics while making a mini-sock sampler in preparation for casting on a full-sized version. Using two circulars or one circular with the Magic Loop method, you'll learn how to Cast-On from the toe, how to turn the heel, and stretchy bind-offs that help make a successful finished sock. Bonus: decorate your mini-sock for a great holiday ornament!
